A new survey released on Monday revealed that 44% of respondents claimed that their vote would remain unaffected if former President Trump is convicted in the hush money case.

A recent poll conducted by Politico Magazine/Ipsos revealed that approximately half of Americans hold the belief that former President Trump is guilty in the hush money case brought against him by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D).

In this case, Trump faces 34 counts related to falsifying business records.

44% of participants indicated that a potential conviction in the case would not impact their voting decisions, while 32% stated that it would.

Nevertheless, if Trump is convicted in the hush money case, it may potentially erode his backing among independents.

According to the poll, 36 percent of independents expressed decreased likelihood of supporting the former president in such a scenario.

A small fraction of Republicans indicated that a conviction would decrease their support for Trump, while a larger percentage stated that it would have no effect.

Interestingly, a significant portion of those polled actually claimed that it would make them more likely to support him.

The Manhattan hush money case has been postponed until mid-April following the submission of additional evidence to both parties.

The hearing that was originally planned for March 25 will now be used by Judge Juan Merchan to discuss the schedule and review the recently submitted documents.
